B – Foreign Trade Complemento (Complemento para Comercio Exterior)

The support of the legal requirement Foreign Trade Complemento require some changes in the Mexico’s CFDI Digital Invoice solution. This complemento applies to export invoices and it is handled via two BADIs. For SD side is the BADI IDMX_DI_SDDATA_DET and for FI side is the BADI IDMX_DI_FIDATA_DET. The methods to be used in SD and FI are described in the topics below.

B1 – Get Supplement Data of Document Header (GET_HEADER_COMPLEMENTO)

It is used to include complemento’s data required in the Original Input Method (Cadena Original). And it is used in the signing generated within SAP system.

B2 – Get Supplement Data of Document Header for XML only (GET_HEADER_COMPLEMENTO_XML)

It is used to build complemento’s structure and data required in the XML file. This structure plus the data is stored in one of the IDOCs fields and it will require to be mapped when the XML file is generated in the middleware system. In the new version of CFDI, SAT defined catalogs for the different address fields (sub district, city, district, state and postal code). For this specific Foreign Trade Complemento, SAT requires those codes in the fields of the different addresses: company’s, sales area’s, customer’s and ship to. In order to include in the XML file the codes for the addresses, a new BADI was released in SAP Note 2316220. You have to create z tables to store the catalogs, and via BADI, replace the addresses texts by the corresponding codes.

B3 – Position of the data in the OIM 

The GET_LINE_ITEM_COMPLEMENTO has to be used when the complement data has to be inserted after each line item of the invoice (Complemento Concepto). The list of the complements, and at which level they are, is in the link ( The only Complementos that are at line item level (Concepto) are Instituiciones educativas privadas; venta de vehículos; terceros; acreditamiento del IEPS. The complement of Foreign Trade (Comercio Exterior) is at header level therefore. The method that has to be used is the GET_HEADER_COMPLEMENTO, not the LINE_ITEM one. In case it is easier to use GET_LINE_ITEM_COMPLEMENTO_XML to determine the data for the XML file, it is ok, as it does not really affects anything. But for the OIM, it is necessary to use the method GET_HEADER_COMPLEMENTO, otherwise the data will not be in the right place to generate the OIM and signing.


C – Means of Payment

In order to enter the new codes for the means of payment, customers will have to use method DET_MEANS_OF_PAYMENT for SD documents or method IDMX_DI_FIDATA_DET for FI documents, from BADI IDMX_DI_SDDATA_DET. The codes and descriptions of Catalog of Payment Methods (Catálogo de Métodos de Pago) are listed below.

01 – Efectivo
02 – Cheque
03 – Transferencia
04 – Tarjetas de crédito
05 – Monederos electrónicos
06 – Dinero electrónico
07 – Tarjetas digitales
08 – Vales de despensa
09 – Bienes
10 – Servicio
11 – Por cuenta de tercero
12 – Dación en pago
13 – Pago por subrogación
14 – Pago por consignación
15 – Condonación
16 – Cancelación
17 – Compensación
98 – “NA”
99 – Otros

C1 – Length of ‘Transferencia Electrónica’ or ‘Transferencia Electrónica de Fondos’

After you refer to SAP Notes 17343731963866 and 1995039, you will be able to indicate your own descriptions in the method DET_MEANS_OF_PAYMENT of the BADI. You have to indicate your own descriptions in the field MEANS_OF_PAYMENT of the exporting internal table CT_ACCOUNT_DATA. You have to add one entry to this internal table for each description that you would like to use. The length of these single descriptions could be longer than 30 characters, however since all the descriptions indicated in the BADI are concatenated later in the function IDMX_DI_ADJUST_ACCOUNT_DATA into the field LS_DATA_EXTRACT-DOCUMENT_DATA-PAYM_MEANS, then the max lenght of the concatenation is 158 characters, because the lenght of field LS_DATA_EXTRACT-DOCUMENT_DATA-PAYM_MEANS is 158. For example, if you use only one description in the BADI, one entry in the exporting internal table CT_ACCOUNT_DATA, then you have the 158 characters available for that description. If you use two descriptions in the BADI, two entries in the exporting internal table CT_ACCOUNT_DATA, then the concatenation of both of them should not exceed 158 characters. In other words, after implementing the SAP Notes, you will be able to use descriptions longer than 30 characters in the BADI, but the max length of the concatenation of them is limited to 158.


D – Other topics

D1 – Mexico City legal name

Log in ERP system using Spanish language (ES), change the Description of the entry MX-DF (sometimes MX-DIF) in the table T005S from ‘Distrito Federal to Ciudad de México’ or ‘Distrito Federal’ to ‘Ciudad de México’. There is no need to change the entry ‘DF’ or ‘DIF’ to other abbreviation. Similar instructions are informed in the SAP Note 1164216, but notice that this SAP Note is not updated with this change in Mexico yet and there are no plans to update it.
